   Watercolour paper creates a canvas for this exposed long stitch journal as unique as your own fingerprint. The journal comes straight from your heart. Beginning with a single brush stroke and continuing through to the cover, the pages wait to receive your musings, drawings or paintings. The pages fold out, down, over and even have surprise pockets perfect for tucking in bits and pieces.
